Why You Won't Be Seeing Me

The clarity
with which I've come to see
myself
Hard-earned, slow-to-come clarity
You insist on distorting
rather than sharing
Because it is
in this distortion that you are "correct",
that you are comfortable
In this distortion, you are free
from the long, hard work
of gaining your own clarity
In this distortion, I--and not you--
will need to change
so that you can be happy.

I choose...To shout “I see you!” instead of “Look at me!”

there was a time a visitor arrived unannounced and as i went to get him a drink he changed the music i was playing...

bad manners, to say the least...?

Hmm...I think it's less katangahan than arrogance (or the willful refusal to consider that one can be anything other than "right") actually...;)
